Tech distributor Ingram Micro recently announced that it’s buying Toronto-based SoftCom, a cloud marketplace and global service provider that offers domain-name management, Web hosting and cloud infrastructure services, as well as other SMB-focused solutions.

SoftCom’s brands include myhosting.com and mail2web.com. Its engineers have a lot of experience in building and developing cloud aggregation and Web solutions.

SoftCom will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Ingram Micro. Turker Sokullu, former CEO and co-founder of SoftCom, will continue to lead the company as executive director.

“… With this acquisition we believe we will further improve the way our global partners and customers sell, service and procure cloud-based solutions. This addition also gives our partners another competitive service advantage in the rapidly growing cloud market, especially with small-to-midsized businesses, and is another step forward in our strategy to better serve our customers and partners with high-value IT services and cloud-delivered solutions,” said Alain Monie, Ingram Micro president and CEO.

Financial terms of the deal weren’t released.
